anzi forse "peso" e' la parola giusta.
non si legge velocemente e non ha una trama ben definita in cui potersi "immergere"... insomma è un libro la cui caratteristica peculiare non è proprio quella di "scorrere" veloce, ma anche questo e' il suo bello.
la storia è assolutamente delirante (in tutto e per tutto: vicenda, intenzioni dello scrittore e narrazione) e in alcuni punti tocca il vero proprio delirio. klimt è sempre presente e l'ossessione del seno perfetto (inteso come un solo seno!) resta

Un viaggio nella mente umana, nei meandri della patologia criminale. Lo strangolatore di Boston, rinchiuso in manicomio, rivolta la propria intelligenza deviata contro i suoi psicologi, irridendoli, mentre racconta la propria vita, fino a confondersi con essi. Chi è il malato, chi il medico? Lo psicopatico è tale solo perché c'è uno psicologo che lo ha in cura? E lo psicologo, sarebbe ancora uno psicologo senza uno psicopatico da curare?

Very interesting book. I particularly enjoyed the way the strangler is presented.
A very sharp criticism of mental institutions and society itself.
As the book unfolds the reader experiences several extreme and rather contraditory emotions - disgust and compassion, pity and admiration, to name but a few - towards the strangler character.

Lo mejor de esta novela es que está narrada a través de los ojos del protagonista, lo que hace que en serio te preguntes si todo lo que está diciendo es verdad o sólo una invención de su mente psicópata. ¿O no es un psicópata?
Es confuso e intrigante a la vez.
